Today I will make a difference


The title phrase is strong ,don’t you think??? The paragraph that follows is even stronger.This is something my best friend/aunt/role model shared with me.This piece gave me so much confidence and really pushed me to make a difference.The first step towards making a difference in this world is making a difference in our thoughts. This is like an oath all of us should take.Coupled with prayer,we sure can make a difference.I’m sharing this ,hoping,someone who passes by will gain strength from this…

I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.

I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference.
I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It’s OK to stumble, I will get up. It’s OK to fail, I will rise again. Today I will make a difference. I will spend time with those I love, my spouse, my children, my family. A man can own the world but be poor for the lack of love. A man can own nothing and yet be wealthy in relationships. Today I will spend at least five minutes with the significant people in my world, five quality minutes of talking or hugging or thanking or listening, five undiluted minutes with my mate, children, and friends. Today I will make a difference.
